Yet the more advanced North Korea’s nuclear arsenal becomes, the tougher it will be to dismantle peacefully. Its slow but steady progress on the nuclear front is something that the U.S. and the rest of the world has been unable to stop.
“Our policy right along,” Defense Secretary William Perry told TIME in his flying stateroom over the Atlantic 22 years ago, “has been oriented to try to keep North Korea from getting a significant nuclear-weapon capability.” That effort has failed.
In fact, in 2006, Perry and Ashton Carter—the current defense secretary—argued that the U.S. should attack a North Korean missile before it could be launched. The U.S. didn’t attack, and the missile test failed. Somewhere down the road, Americans might not be so lucky.
Even before his birth, the future leader of North Korea was triggering miracles. Official biographers say his birth in a cabin on the slopes of Baekdu Mountain in February 1942 was foretold by a swallow and heralded by a double rainbow. When he was born, a new star appeared in the night sky. * The first time he picked up a golf club, in 1994, Kim reportedly shot a 38-under par round on North Korea's only golf course, including 11 holes-in-one. He then decided to retire from the sport for ever. * Kim has the ability to alter the weather simply through the power of thought. * The fledgling leader was a genius as an infant, with official North Korean biographies stating that he had learned to walk at just 3 weeks and was talking at 8 weeks. * As a junior high school pupil in Pyongyang, he corrected and chastised his teachers for their incorrect interpretations of history.

His favourite movies are reportedly "Friday the 13th," "Rambo" and anything starring Elizabeth Taylor. * Kim reportedly employs a servant to inspect every grain of rice that is served to him. Any with the most minor of flaws is discarded.

Following reports that the U.S. nuclear posture review discusses the use of nuclear weapons against North Korea, Pyongyang's state-run press organ announces that, if the United States "tries to use nuclear weapons" against North Korea, it will be compelled to "examine all the agreements" reached with the United States. The report says that, "if the U.S. inflicts nuclear holocaust upon [North Korea], the former's mainland will not be safe either."
